Light Records’ recording artist/songwriter Jonathan McReynolds’ smooth vocals breathes life into Contemporary Gospel music with his debut release, “Life Music” (Tehillah Music/Light Records). His sound is a mixture of R&B/Pop with Jazz influences.
“I have been writing since high school. I just started writing ‘life music’ in college,” said the passionate young artist about the album. “I began with an EP. I did everything myself including the album cover. One of my friends was a manager when I was a kid. He said, ‘I want to help.’ He and another young guy, Walter Thomas. It was old school and new school.”
Jonathan’s ‘life music’ was eventually heard by Bishop Morton at Tehillah Music Group, an imprint of Light Records and he loved it.
“Life Music” debuted at #3 on Billboard Gospel Charts indicating what a jewel project it is.
“I found favor with them,” McReynolds said. “Good luck is favor. We understand our blessings and trials. I don’t care about record sales but I know being #3 makes the label happy. I want to make a mark on music. Bless me with a wholesome life.”
Well Jonathan has blessed us all with “Life Music.” My favorite cuts on the album include “Lovin’ Me,” a sweet heartfelt song of love; “No Longer,” an R&B/Pop flavored selection with a twist of Jazz influence; “Smile,” featuring Ashley Washington, and “Glory Up,” for its Hip-Hop flavor.
“I Love You,” the single currently on the radio from “Life Music” is a catchy song and has already reached Billboard’s Top 20 Gospel Singles Chart.
